Acoustic sounding parts are included in a few places to contrast the melancholic and dissonant riffing which divides the rest of the album into a frothing sea of emotion.
if you love exploration in music, different artistic expressions, strange genre blends, and various other avant garde approaches, then this is a must listen.
Drenched in bloody violence, with horror infused pain dripping from musical wounds, Let Us Pray is a tour de force of emotional riffs, attacking rhythms, unsettling dynamics, and terrifying vocal delivery.
This one feels off-kilter, like it’s always about to tip over and crush the listener.
…the band I most think of in comparison to Barrel Bones is one of my favorites, namely The Gaslight Anthem.
Like a serpent slithering forth from some dark corner, Scar Echoes crawls forth, reptilian and threatening.
Listening to these eight tracks requires a willingness to enter a harsh world, but the payoff is worth it.
